Columbus artist Jenny Fine says her camera has become a tool for facilitating intimacy between herself and her family, and nowhere is that more evident than in her “Flat Granny” series, soon to be on view at the Dublin Arts Council. The artist photographed her grandmother during the last ten years of her life.
Drilling Rules Expected To Clear Legislature, Head To Governor
Rules regulating oil and gas well construction, water handling, and chemical disclosure are ready to clear their final legislative hurdles and head to Gov. John Kasich.
The Ohio House was scheduled to vote Thursday on the new regulations governing hydraulic fracturing in the Utica and Marcellus shale formations running under sections of the state. They are part of a wide-ranging energy bill that also addresses Ohio’s clean energy standard and makes dozens of other changes.
Barring floor changes to the bill, the Ohio Senate was prepared to concur on House changes later in the day. Their approval would send the bill to Kasich, who is expected to sign it.
Environmentalists oppose a House change that limits who can sue energy companies for chemical trade secrets.
